Mac (2001-03-19-12 mtrunk) 1. Select Inbox folder, press on the arrow down key Actual result: when it comes down to the second half of the message, it high-lights 7 message threads Expected result: Only one selection should occurs 2. press on the arrow up key Actual result: It de-select the second half of the thread and then multiple select the upper half of the threads. This occurs on Mac only
So, you get a mis-selection? Is this just a refresh problem? Or if you were to delete at that point, all selected items get deleted?
I am not sure. Using the downward arrow key, if I press Delete, the last message got deleteed. Using the upward arrow key, if I press Delete, all selected messages got deleted.
Build 2001-03-28-04: Mac 9.04 This problem is still occuring. Multiple selection seems to start when the message right above the horizontal splitter (b/n the thread and message pane) is selected.
So, this looks like it's a painting problem in the outliner because when I cause a repaint by dragging another window over it, the problem goes away. I'm going to reassign to hyatt, but if it's something we're doing in mailnews, let us know. It's pretty easy to reproduce. I just select the top message in flat view and start arrowing up. All messages appear to be selected (even though they really aren't based on the fact that operations only work on one message).

Only the "real" selection gets deleted as far as I can see. It's just a painting problem, as putterman says. Accepting (sooo, let's see if I can work on Mac :)
->pinkerton (hyatt sez, "i didn't notice it was mac-only")
excuse me? why is this mine (is it because i happen to have a mac?). that's not a very good reason.

--> trudelle. This can be given to someone else.
pink: fwiw, hyatt mentioned to me that this is more or less the exact same mac painting bug as was in the tree widget.
with a build from 5/16/01, i can't reproduce this at all. no matter what i do with the up or down arrow keys in the thread pane, i only see one message selected. i tried both modern and classic, message pane hidden and visible. tried both my powerbook and desktop. -->WFM, i guess.
